Title: Time-measuring device: making your own history of remembrance box with childhood’s physical growth
Author: Huh, Sang Hee
Abstract: Memories, for most of us, are precious indeed. Reminiscing helps us recall long gone events and a wide range of emotions. However, our recollection is imperfect and we know our memory is limited. Our memories may change or we may forget. We are unwilling to entrust precious memories solely to the unassisted mind. Children, in particular, undergo considerable physical, mental, and emotional changes. It is not easy for them to realize or later recall their growth process without assistance. At present, children can review their growth with different types of records: written data on a medical history, photos in family albums, or listening to stories told about their childhood from their parents. However, it is difficult for children to keep physical records together with other childhood memories. Childhood memories can be significantly assisted when a child can see a record at any time and share it with family members who recorded the growth with the child. Therefore, I plan to design a device to record a wide variety of memories, including records of physical growth. We might call this a “time-measuring” device. I believe each family will be able to capture memories in their own way, and then use this device as an aid when sharing this interesting experience with their family.
